  • I never used a bassinet. She was in a crib from the start.

  • It's been a long time, but I think our son slept in his bassinet until he was about 3 or 4 months old.

  • Mine slept in their cribs from the 1st night, but I used a bassinet downstairs for naps for the first couple weeks (I had a csection and going up and down stairs was difficult the first few days at home)
